Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Cabriolet-Fahrzeug (1) mit einem auffaltbaren, mit einer Heckscheibe (3) versehenen Dach (4), das in einem rückwärtigen Fahrzeugbereich ablegbar ist und über zumindest einen Spannbügel (10) im geschlossenen Zustand gegenüber der Karosserie (2) verspannt ist, wobei der Spannbügel (10) zum Öffnen des Daches (4) nach vorne verschwenkbar ist und hierbei eine Vorwärtsverlagerung der Heckscheibe (3) bewirkt. Um bei einer derartigen Ausbildung die Vorwärtsverlagerung des die Heckscheibe umfassenden hinteren Verdeckbereiches ohne Behinderung durch hochstehende Teile, wie z. B. hinter Kopfstützen oder Überrollbügel, ausführen zu können, ist vorgesehen, daß die Heckscheibe (3) in einem verdeckseitigen, nach unten geöffneten Rahmen (6) gehalten und während des Öffnens und Schließens des Daches (4) gegenüber diesem Rahmen (6) aufschwenkbar ist. <IMAGE>
